Soft Landings guidance

BSRIA has published a range of free guidance (unless stated otherwise) to help companies understand the Soft Landings process an implement it successfully for new and refurbished buildings.  A hard copy set of Soft Landings Guides is also available from the BSRIA Bookshop.

Soft Landings and Government Soft Landings
Provides an overview of the Government Soft Landings (GSL) policy and a comparison with the BSRIA Soft Landings Framework (BG 54/2014).

Soft Landings Core Principles
The package of principles that should be adopted in their entirety in order for a construction project to be deemed a true Soft Landings project.

Soft Landings Framework
The Soft Landings Framework includes all the procedures for applying Soft Landings, plus checklists and generic workplans.

How to Procure Soft Landings (paid for guide - links to BSRIA Bookshop)
Written primarily to help public and private sector clients and main contractors procure Soft Landings services from their construction supply chains.

Pitstopping - BSRIA's Reality Checking Process for Soft Landings (paid for guide - links to BSRIA Bookshop)
Describes a process that allows construction teams to periodically reconsider critical design issues by focusing on the perspective of the end user.

Soft Landings Worksheets Stages 1 - 5 (Excel format)
These worksheets are taken from the Appendices of Soft Landings core principles and framework guides. BSRIA’s advice is to use these worksheets in the matter of a basic script and stage prompts. Use them to build your Soft Landings activities, and if you lose your way for whatever reason, go back to the worksheets for hints and directions.

Soft Landings for Schools
This case study publication reports on how Soft Landings processes have been carried out on the UK schools rebuilding programme. The leaflet identifies not only the benefits of applying Soft Landings, but also some of the barriers, and ways in which those barriers can be overcome. Note that a more detailed report is available from www.usablebuildings.co.uk.

BREEAM New Construction & Soft Landings
Provide explanatory notes where the Soft Landings Framework is referenced in BREEAM New Construction requirements, and assists in meeting a number of BREEAM credits.
